Vermont Blood Testing Facilities
Vermont is the second least populated state and the sixth-smallest state. But that doesn't mean that the “Green Mountain State” is a place to ignore. Vermont has a rich, compelling history, picturesque wilderness and wildlife, stunning attractiveness, fresh, organic Farmer’s Markets, museums, art galleries, historical sites, quaint, friendly small towns that will take you back to a simpler, more relaxed era, scenic lakes, world-class skiing, covered bridges, maple farms, majestic forests, and enjoying the sights, sounds, and shops in the cities. There is so much to discover in Vermont.
Let’s take a look at a few of the many “must-see” attractions that Vermont has to offer:
- Montpelier. The Vermont state capital is a marvelous place to begin an exploration of the state. The Vermont State House Capital building was built prior to the civil war and has an elegant charm that reflects that era. The state museum is loaded with engaging history, and the old-fashioned furniture and artwork are well-worth the price of admission (FREE)! The Coburn Covered Bridge and the Morse Farm Maple Sugar Works are other Montpelier attractions.
- Rock of Ages Quarry. Located near Montpelier in Barre, here’s the chance to drop into the deepest (600Ft) granite mine in the world, and discover how the granite industry began after the war of 1812, how it has changed, and where it is at today. The historical museum tells the story of how granite is excavated, the dangerous challenges that must be overcome to get the granite out of the mine, and the final end product. Don’t forget to try your bowling skills on the granite bowling alley.
- Hope Cemetery. Located next to the Rock of Ages Quarry, the granite monuments at the Hope Cemetery are sophisticated, elaborate works of art, which is not usually the case for cemetery monuments. The wide variety of headstone designs is intriguing, and we can only speculate on why the loved ones of the deceased chose those unique, individual layouts and patterns. “Weird and Wonderful” is how one visitor described the headstones. Plan on spending enough time to wander leisurely through these well-manicured gardens while taking in the artistic masterpieces that pay final tribute to the deceased.
- Stowe. While you are in the Montpelier area, don’t forget to check out the Gold Brook Covered Bridge located a short distance from the city of Stowe. The surrounding area is perfect for pictures, and the covered bridge is an excellent example of the many covered bridges in the state. The bridge was built in 1844 by a logging company that needed easy access to their work area close to the dam the company created for a hydroelectric source to power their logging operations. The strange allure of the bridge is due to the folklore of “Emily”, a teen-aged girl from an impoverished family who fell in love with a young man of means in the 1850s. The couple was engaged, but the wealthy family of the young man did not approve of the marriage of their scion to a lower-class woman. According to the legend, the young man told his bride-to-be to wait for him on the bridge at midnight. When he didn’t show, Emily, sensing the reason for his absence, was overcome with grief and ended her agony and heartbreak by jumping off the bridge. The bridge has subsequently been known as “Emily’s Bridge.” There have been numerous paranormal activities and sightings on the bridge, especially around midnight. Fact or fiction? Go there and decide for yourself!
- Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium. Located in St. Johnsbury, the Fairbanks Museum & planetarium has so many different things to see and do that it is truly a place with “something for everyone.” Astronomy is high on the list of interesting topics, thanks to the Fairbanks Night Owl Club, which bills itself as “An informal, virtual conversation with astronomy experts and presenters to discuss all of your questions about stars, planets, and space exploration!” Discover more engrossing minutiae about dinosaurs with the Flying Monsters 3D exhibit, and enter the fascinating world of bugs, reptiles, and amphibians in the hands-on, interactive nature center. The museum is a repository of exhibits from the civil war, nanotechnology, time-lapsed photography, extreme weather, to Vermont Wildflowers and Native American stone tools. And across the street from the museum is the St. Johnsbury Athenaeum Art Gallery.
- The Georgian Revival Hildene Estate. Constructed in 1905 by Robert Todd Lincoln, the son of President Abraham Lincoln, the stately, elegant mansion is a breathtaking, picturesque, imposing structure surrounded by a well-kept garden that is home to around 1,000 fragrant peony blossoms. The furniture of the house is set in the style of the early 20th century, and there are several genuine artifacts of the Lincoln family: antique books, President Lincoln’s stovepipe hat, a thousand-pipe 1908 Aeolian organ, and an exhibit of the exact words from President Lincoln’s second inaugural address.
- Quechee Gorge. For an up-close look at geology at work, a stop at Quechee Gorge (aka “Vermont’s Little Grand Canyon”) is an awe-inspiring, spellbinding example of the inexorable patience of Mother Nature. Going back to the ice age approximately 13,000 years ago the glacier that covered the area began to slowly recede. The result was the erosion of the bedrock that eventually became the Quechee Gorge. Called “Vermont’s most spectacular natural wonder”, the gorge offers an opportunity to relax in a tranquil, placid environment, take in the stunning, graceful scenery, and get some exercise with a hilly nature hike at the same time.
- Bennington Battle Monument. The Green Mountain’s role in the Revolutionary War is at times overlooked since the other colonies considered Vermont to be somewhat of a rogue state. In fact, Vermont went so far as to establish itself as a sovereign nation in January 1777. But that soon changed, and at the Battle of Bennington in the summer of 1777 Vermont troops fought valiantly, and played a crucial role in defeating a powerful, experienced Redcoat division. The climb up the 306-foot-high obelisk is well worth the time and effort since it will allow you to see and understand the ebb and flow of the battle. And don’t forget to stop at the museum, and check out the many artifacts of that era. A trip back in time, for sure.
- Brattleboro Farmers' Market. When considering the fact that so many old-fashioned, organic foods are grown on the small farms of Vermont, is it any surprise that farmer’s markets abound and thrive throughout the state? One of the most significant of these markets is the Brattleboro Farmer’s Market. Looking for fresh, non-pesticide produce from the local small farms? How about honey, maple syrup, cheese, jellies, healthy dairy options, a broad assortment of ethnic foods, many vegetarian selections, and nutritious sweets? They’re all here. And it’s not just food. Massage therapists, wine, live music, and hand-made, meticulously crafted jewelry all sold from some novel, unpretentious, rustic booths make the Brattleboro Farmers’ Market the place to be! Don’t miss it!
- Lake Champlain. At times referred to as “The Sixth Great Lake”, Lake Champlain and its surrounding areas are jammed-packed with fun and fascinating things to see and do. With a rich, compelling history that includes Native American tribes, Revolutionary War battles both on land and sea, the Battle of Lake Champlain fought during the War of 1812, the Lake Champlain Monster known affectionately as “Champy”, the sights and sounds of nearby Burlington, especially the Church Street Marketplace, hopping on a Ferry from Burlington to Port Kent for a relaxing journey, guided tours, camping, boating, hiking, and a visit to the Echo, Leahy Center for Lake Champlain to discover engrossing facts about the shipwrecks on the lake, and the lake’s diversified marine life through immersive 3-D technology, don’t be in a hurry to leave!
- And more...much, much more. Covered bridges and Maple Syrup farms are sprinkled throughout the state, and a leisurely drive will be memorable, especially in the fall, where you can view nature’s changing panorama quite like nowhere else.
But you need to be vigorous and energetic to enjoy the tourist attractions that Vermont has to offer.
